    How all occasions do inform against me,
    And spur my dull revenge! What is a man,
    If his chief good and market of his time
    Be but to sleep and feed? A beast, no more.

Horoscopes for 10.25.2018




Elastic nature of time, in Shakespeare’s plays. You know, not unlike a TV show plot? Seriously, not much critical thought is required here; watching some TV show, and the office, it’s daytime, drinking coffee; cuts to a downtown shot at night, crime scene, CSU on the job; cuts back to the office, and the boss is just getting to work; elastic nature of time in a story, right? I got at this from one of Shakespeare’s plays, Hamlet, where there’s a series of events, and the timeline as we establish it, doesn’t hold up to close scrutiny. Poetic License, a thing I know about, myself. Remember that a ripping good yarn, a tale as told by whatever — whomever — the idea of gripping story makes up for holes in plausible reality. Besides, this is fiction, and as such, fiction doesn’t have to be too coherent. The elastic nature of time will come into full play, with Scorpio, the closer we get to the next week, as Venus shifts back to Libra.


The question of the week, “Where did you fly, the first time?” Local guy I know, his first flight, his first trip, he was well-passed midlife when he went to Las Vegas, and that was his first flight. He’d never flown before. Weird, to me. But I grew up with a globetrotting family, and travel is in my bloodline. By extension, air travel is all part of my background. In the earliest portions of my career, at one point, the gate staff knew me at the old Austin airport.

    Therefore be cheer’d,
    Make not your thoughts your prisons;

Horoscopes for 10.18.2018



The Scales

While I certainly spend much less time traveling from town to town these days, I have, in the past, spent many years waking up in strange motels. Over the years, I’ve grown accustom to pitiful coffee service devices in motel rooms, with the emphasis being on weak, pre-packaged coffee of one stripe or another. Last motel I was in? Usual Mr. Coffee knock-off with “Guaranteed Fresh” pre-packaged ground beans. The package was for 2 cups of coffee, the coffee maker was for 8 cups. There were matching packages of regular roast and decaf. I opened up the single-serving, two-cup for regular then I added the same for the decaf, in other words, it was four cups of coffee, half-caf, half-decaf. Then, in the coffee maker, I only added four cups of water, despite being able to handle eight. This might appear to be some kind of recipe for disaster, but I was just trying to arrive at a serviceable cup of coffee without halving to think too hard. While I do tend to believe that “Decaf is the work of the devil,” this match yielded about two good mugs of coffee that tasted OK, and certainly tasted better than usual motel coffee. It is about making allowances and with the current Libra birthdays, the allowances can be a simple trick like using that package of decaf to obtain the fullest flavor from the regular coffee. Emotionally, it delivers the same punch. Given the nature of the season? That works.


The three R’s? Risk. Reward. Ratio. There is an easy way to calculate this, the way I recall it? Risk. Reward. Ratio. Coastal fishing in October, right before the Sun hits Scorpio? Risk? A quick glance at the weather shows there is minimal weather complication. Reward? Either a big cooler full of fresh fish, or an excellent and relaxing day on the water, or both. Ratio? On that one? It is win-win, near 100%...
